The Dutch infrastructure was amazing. I enjoyed seeing everything from the advisory bike lane to the infrastructure design of the train stations. My favorite city for design was Houten. I like how the city was preplanned. Having the Traffic on the ring road, and having no stop lights within the city was a great idea. This idea gave the kids in the city the safety to cycle to school at any age, and gave cyclist the priority. My favorite infrastructure was the double roundabout. That was the best functional design in the Netherlands in my opinion. My favorite city overall was the Haag. I loved how all the shopping areas were close to each other. In this city, I got to see a lot of working professionals cycling, women in skirts and heels, and men in suits and ties. This showed me that one could still look nice and cycle to work. The lighting in the city at night was so beautiful, which made me feel safe walking to the train stations at night.
In the US, Atlanta particularly there is no area where there are no traffic lights. A lot of areas in Atlanta are not built to cater to all users. The attitudes on cycling are totally different from the people in the Netherlands. Infrastructure in the Netherlands makes the people around it feels comfortable and safe. Since the infrastructure designs are built in the Netherlands to cater to all users and all modes of transportation, a lot of people utilize the different modes. It is a norm to see someone park their bike at the train station and get on the train, or bike to work and not be afraid of being late. These types of attitudes have enhanced their communities, made it safer, and being a model of other countries.
